Finding new and exciting ways to get subscribers to your list is always great. We’ve been getting rave reviews from different people about Nerdbux, so I decided to put it to the test to show you the results and what I did.
#1 Create your Splash Page
I used this page. It’s my standard splash page I’ve been using for years. I know, I should update it. The text changes based on which site you are coming from and what type of site (so for Nerdbux it said The #1 PTC Blog, get results with Nerdbux).
The key elements for a good splash page: It grabs your attention (BRIGHT ORANGE works for me lol). It’s easy to read and right to the point, and it has a simple subscribe form (for now, skip the form part).
#2 Create your Tracker
Obviously I used Trck.me to create a tracker that links to that page. Very simple and straight forward. For settings I told it I’d manually track conversions. The copy the conversion tracker image for the next step.
#3 Create your Opt In Form
This is the fun part. The new RocketResponder designer lets you make some pretty cool forms, really easy. I was lazy and went old school no color no fluff. Just be sure to paste the conversion tracker image into the Form Designer, on the Options tab. It’ll take care of displaying that conversion image for you automatically.
For the rest of the options it’s up to you. If you don’t have your own thank you page, leave it blank. Your subscribers need to know to look out for the confirmation email ;-)
#4 Advertise your Tracker Link
And now the circle is complete. Start sending traffic to that tracker link and you’ll see which sites are giving you conversions, how many hits it’s taking, and lots more.
The End Results..
After getting this all setup I put a quick ad into Nerdbux and got 14 subscribers from 10,373 hits. That’s pretty good. I also assigned credits from a popular traffic exchange and got 1 subscriber from 2,486 hits.
Now obviously these numbers will be different for you and to be quite honest 10k and 2k hits aren’t that many to make big time comparisons. The overall point though is Nerdbux is actually providing quality traffic. If you had asked me years ago about paid to clicks I would have scoffed at the idea. I guess we live and learn right? =P
